our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the

in boston, where bystanders said, you could hear a pin drop, as the networks called the election for president obama. reports last night that governor romney was so confident in his victory, he had only written one speech beforehand, a victory speech. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. [ cheers and applause ] i so wish -- i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. >> reporter: but in the end, it was not even close. obama won even those outstanding battlegrounds, like virginia, nevada. >> i just spoke with governor romney. and we may have battled fiercely. but it's only because we love this country deeply. >> reporter: so, george, the question, now, what now? and president obama has said that he will reach out to republican leaders. he wants to meet with mitt romney. he even last night reached out to romney voters. where are some areas of compromise? perhaps tax reform. perhaps immigration reform. we'll see in the days ahead. george? >> that's right. t
that critical 270 vote threshold in the electoral college. he was in boston when he waited for the returns to come in. he spoke to an enthusiastic crowd. he thanked them and said that he had conceded the race to president obama. >> i just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. his supporters and campaign also deserve congratulations. i wish all of them well but particularly the president, the first lady and their tauters. >> this is a time of great chapel cleng and i pray he will be successful. romney did 294 different campaign stops through out the course of it. even though the election is over he says big challenges still face the country. >> i ran for office because i am concerned about americans. this election is over, i believe the principles with which this nation was founded is the only sure guide to a surging key con me. they thought they had a good fast victory. even iffed mid best to reach the 7270 we needed. >> doug lou saider live in walking the balance of power remains the same for us. ainsley is here to break it down. >> the gop will remain in control of t

. >>> now to all the questions being aimed at romney campaign headquters in boston after a sad night there. and the question, what went wrong in the romney campaign. peter alexander covering for us there tonight. good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you here in boston, this is apparently the intersection of politics and the nor'easter. in the words of one top aide to the romney campaign, the mood in that campaign is a lot like this weather, dreary, at the end of a six-year long quest for the white house. tonight, mitt romney is left asking is himself what might have been. dressed in a business suit and surrounded by family and friends and for a final few hours, the secret service team, mitt romney this morning left his boston hotel, quickly returning to life as a private citizen. >> hey, governor, can you give us a word? >> reporter: on this november 7th, the day romney promised they would get to work, the only work to do, packing up. after 90 minutes after most networks had called the race, mr. romney took the stage alone. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everythi
before returning to boston to watch returns. president obama who voted early last month dropped by a chicago campaign office to thank volunteers. but for both candidates, virginia is one of the battlegrounds they'll be most closely watching tonight. one both have visited in the past four days. >> how are you doing? >> reporter: in prince william county is a battleground within a battle ground. this man is sticking with the president in 2012. >> feel pretty good about it. i think that a lot of policies that he put in place, you don't see it until four years later. >> reporter: this young voter is casting his first ballot for barack obama. >> i did vote obama because he did a lot of changes. for instance, he ended one war in iraq. >> this voter is a change. an obama voter in 2008, the slow improvement in the economy has him making a switch. >> i voted for romney just because of the economy. i like obama. i think he is -- i think we need something changed up to affect the direction of the economy. >> reporter: this woman also says the economy, along with the unemployment rate, drov
hoped for. msnbc's chris jansing is outside headquarters in boston. it's eerie how quiet it is. there's nothing going on behind you. that's not the way they thought this was going to be the morning after the election. >> to say the least. and you mentioned mitt romney had spent almost seven years for president. it was over in about five minutes. a short of gracious concession speech. but that was preceded, chuck, by 90 of what were thought to be bizarre minutes where the media called for barack obama. and some for mitt romney said they would contest it there. at one point ryan got in his van and returned to the hotel. there was a question even when they said he was coming over here to make remarks whether it would be a concession speech. about an hour and a half after the networks called it, the mitt romney did call the president and then came into this ballroom for what i said was a very brief and very gracious final comment. so after one of the most -- the most expensive presidential race in history and one of the most acrimonious, mitt romney called for unity. >> the nation as you
states. mitt romney voted this morning near his boston area home with his wife. romney is now heading to ohio and then pennsylvania where he is making last-minute campaign appearances. this was just announced yesterday before heading back to boston this evening. president obama is back home in chicago where he will watch the results come in later this evening. coming up at 7:15, we will have a guide to the key returns today and when we could know the results of the presidential election. >> time 7:01 you heard tori the polls opened moments ago here in california. we have reporters all over the bay area covering today's local, state and national issues. you see the reporters there tara and everybody else we will start with ktvu's at polling place in san jose good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is the register office and they are giving away the i voted stickers here. you can see behind me there areelection workers waiting here for cars to drive on through. they have the setup for pool's convenience and these election workers are greeting the voters and take ballots as they dr
. but this is something to cheer, the people in boston at romney headquarters. >> john, i know you're looking to the screen as well. iowa being projected now for barack obama. >> well, that is a piece of bad news for the romney campaign. again, remember, mitt romney needed to win most of the nine swing states. not just a couple of them. most of them. he's still got to do that. he's not out of the game, but if you take the state of iowa, you got colorado out there, if president obama can hold nevada and the state of colorado, it doesn't matter what happens in any of these other states. he'll be over the finish line. so big challenges, more for president obama, fewer more romney, but he's still in the game. >> waiting on too close to call races which of course have been really critical. ohio being number one. florida, as well. we know now north carolina and, of course, iowa. >> larry, he needs 21 votes. >> yeah. there's a pattern. i mean, let's face it. there's a pattern here. and whether you're romney supporter or not, you got to look at this thing. the pattern spills over into the u.s. senate
and western maryland. wet at times from boston to d.c. and western new york. also showers dampen roads in the northern rockies and the pacific northwest. >> if you're flying, expect residual airport delays from sandy from boston, new york city, philadelphia and washington, d.c. >>> and good news to pass on to travelers this morning. new york's la guardia airport is reopening with limited service today. some subway lines will also begin running. but recovery is a lot slower in other areas. >> like hoboken, new jersey, where as many as 20,000 residents are still stranded in their flooded homes. 25% of the city is underwater. and now, that standing water is becoming contaminated. residents are patient but worried. >> it's scary. you don't know how long you're going to be stuck here. you don't know how you're going to get out of town. >> the national guard has been delivering ready-to-eat meals for stranded residents. others lucky enough to get to a store are finding prices jacked way up. >> the worst flooding in that city in two centuries. >>> and while the storm's been dominating the hea
